Remove the parts that you intend to keep and post photos as you would sell
it. Size & color should be in the header. The more detail in the parts
listing the better; i.e. "Sugino XD-2 crankset w/ 24-36-46 rings" instead
of "Sugino cranks". Answer as many questions as you can anticipate.
This is probably one of your best places to sell, as people looking for a
Rivendell will look here. Many list members have extensive knowledge and
so a better idea of what you're selling than the average bike buyer.
As to price, that's a tough call. The market will tell you, but the market
changes. For instance, if you have a very small frame, the market is
narrow but for someone who needs one, the bike will be valuable. Steve's
advice on pricing is worth a thought. Without knowing more detail, it's
difficult to suggest a number.
